The ancient stone circle of Stonehenge is one of the great wonders of the world and has been awarded World Heritage status. Why it was built remains a mystery, but it has functioned as a pagan place of worship, an astronomical clock, and a Bronze Age burial ground. The origin of Stonehenge dates back almost 5,000 years.
